Fall Swaps

I participated in three Fall swaps! I got my first box from Allie at The Gypsy Teacher last week. See all the goodness here.

This past week I received my last two Fall swap boxes from Royal and Janene. I got paired up with some very thoughtful, creative ladies. The best part was getting to know them and supporting their blogs!

This first box came from Royal at Royal Proclaims. You can already tell how crafty she is by the address on the box! My glitter name looked so cool!

Inside was this spooky house, which Scout was dying to help open!

Royal hooked me up with nail polishes, candy, candy corn Yankee candle votives, a blinking skeleton, and lip gloss! The candy was gone the first night. I was so excited to get so much nail polish. There are so many ways to mix and match these fun colors! It included crackle polish, which I had never used before, and I really like it!

Royal featured the goodies I sent her on her blog. Make sure you check it out!

My third swap box came to me through the Cara Box swap from Janene at Celebrating Life. I am absolutely in love with the way she wrapped this! She also made an nifty handmade card!

Scout loved this box too.

Janene sent me some awesome stuff too! She sent me a nail polish, a scarf, some blank note cards, Vanilla Chai tea (which my hubby loves!), chocolate covered espresso beans, and a Starbucks gift card! I know all this will come in handy in the next few months. I love the color of scarf. It will give a great pop of color and you need that here in Michigan in the fall and winter! I also just ran out of stationary so the timing worked out perfectly!

What about you? Have you been participating in any swaps?
What are some of your favorites for the Fall and Winter?


  1. I'm so glad it made it there! I was worried when the gal at the UPS Store said, "um, what's the recipient's name?" haha, I guess the way I addressed it was a bit confusing.
    And that polish is pretty cool! I wish I had picked up some myself!
    Also, I'll think about you tomorrow when I'm walking around inside Fenway park at GAME SIX OF THE WORLD SERIES!! GO RED SOX! Woo! Keith surprised me with tickets! I'll be sure to post photos!

  2. This is awesome! It's so much fun to get real mail with such fun goodies! :)

  3. I love the way she wrapped it! Looks like a great box!

  4. Soo cute and creative. I'll have to keep some of this in mind for my next Cara Box
